I'm a first time new-to-me pool owner (probably built around 1985, still has the copper pipes and all) and I absolutely LOVE this site.
OK, so I'm 100% sure you've all answered this question a billion times (although I didn't find evidence of my exact situation - like mine's so different ) but...
What order should I fix these levels (measured using taylor kit)? I have no way to aerate, other than getting in and splashing around.
TA - 150
CYA - 70
CH - 575
I also don't understand how my ph can be low but my TA be high - but it is. Can some of you chemist-types help me understand that. Also, draining for the CH isn't really possible - I live in a hard water area (although I've seen many of you say that CH doesn't really affect much if you keep your other levels in check). I'd like to do the overnight loss test/SLAM this weekend, but is there something more pressing I should be worried about first?
